Cadillac’s season over?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Carnell Williams grabs his knee after being hit in the first quarter against the Carolina Panthers. 

It appears that Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Carnell Williams’ season may have ground to a halt.  According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports and a source close to Williams, Williams suffered a torn patellar tendon in his right leg Sunday in a 20-7 Buccaneers victory over the Carolina Panthers.

Williams was tackled by Panthers safety Chris Harris; Williams fell awkwardly and grabbed his right leg immediately following contact.  Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden had no comment regarding Williams’ injury; however, both Williams and Bucs’ quarterback Jeff Garcia acknowledged the seriousness of the injury, with Garcia adding, “I’m sure that Cadillac knew at that point his season was over.  We just wanted him to know how much we support him.”

Williams is expected today to visit renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, AL, according to a member of Williams’ family.  In the meantime, it would appear that RB’s Earnest Graham and Michael Pittman will for the foreseeable future share the running chores for the Buccaneers; scanning the waiver/free agent wire is another option available to them, as well.
